  • 1 ripe banana
  • 500ml whole milk
  • 10g vanilla sugar (or substitute with vanilla extract and sugar)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 60g granulated sugar
  • 25g cornstarch
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 100g plain biscuits (school biscuits or any simple, crunchy cookie)
  • Chocolate shavings or chocolate chips for decoration



  1. Prepare the Custard Base:
    • In a medium saucepan, whisk together the egg yolks, granulated sugar, and cornstarch until smooth. Gradually whisk in the milk to ensure there are no lumps.
  2. Cook the Custard:
    • Place the saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add the vanilla sugar (or vanilla extract) to infuse the custard with a rich vanilla flavor. Continue to cook and stir until the mixture thickens into a custard. This process should take about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Flavor the Custard:
    • Once the custard has thickened, remove it from the heat. Stir in the freshly squeezed orange juice, mixing well to combine. The orange juice adds a lovely citrus note that complements the sweetness of the custard.
  4. Layer the Dessert:
    • Slice the banana into thin rounds. In your serving dish, create a base layer of banana slices. Next, add a layer of biscuits, breaking them if necessary to fit your dish.
  5. Assemble:
    • Pour the warm custard over the banana and biscuit layers, ensuring the biscuits are completely covered. The warmth of the custard will begin to soften the biscuits, creating a lovely texture.
  6. Chill:
    • Place the dessert in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes. This allows the flavors to meld and the custard to set slightly, making it easier to serve.
  7. Decorate and Serve:
    • Before serving, garnish the top of the custard with chocolate shavings or chocolate chips for a decorative and delicious touch.


  • For an extra layer of flavor, you can mix a little orange zest into the custard while cooking.
  • If you prefer a crunchier texture, add the biscuit layer just before serving to prevent them from softening too much in the custard.

Enjoy your Banana-Orange Custard Delight, a simple yet elegant dessert that combines the best of fruity flavors with the creamy indulgence of vanilla custard. Whether as a treat for yourself or to impress your guests, this dessert is sure to please!
